Court facts reveal Henderson and Ketley allegedly travelled to six different locations after allegedly stabbing Phillips in both legs at a home in Claymore.
Police allege Phillips willingly drove to see the duo before an argument broke out and the latter stabbed the complainant in the left thigh using a red kitchen knife.
Ketley then allegedly stabbed Phillips in the right leg and instructed her to walk to her car, where she was forced into the boot.
From there, the trio drove to a second residential address in Glenfield, where the two accused allegedly dumped the victim and left for four hours.
Ketley’s lawyer Mark Rumore argued in court that during this time, the complainant had four hours to escape or flee, indicating she wasn’t ‘kidnapped’ as the charges state given she chose to remain at the address.
Police claim she spent the time applying first aid to her wounds and trying to bandage herself up.
They allege when Ketley returned to the house she said: ‘Oh, you’re still alive? What a shame. I guess we’re going to have to drag this on. I was hoping you would just give it up’.
Phillips was again put in the boot of the car at knifepoint at about 6.10am, police allege, and driven to Campbelltown mall car park.
CCTV footage was played to the court of the two women driving through the parking garage. Police allege Ketley opened the rear car door and, while leaning over into the boot, stabbed Phillips a further five times in the shoulder and arm.
She was allegedly told to ‘keep her head down’ while in the boot.
From there, GPS tracking on the car reveals they drove to an address in Ambarvale, where they met with a man and woman who live at the home.
The pair allegedly assisted in retrieving Phillips from the boot after the Holden was reversed into the carport, at which point police facts state the woman brandished a hammer in a threatening manner.
The woman, who Daily Mail Australia has not identified, was later pulled over with police with the hammer in her possession. She told officers she was returning it to a tradesman and was sent on her way. She returned to the address and demanded Ketley and Henderson leave with Phillips.
Police allege the duo continued on their drive and pulled over on the side of the road near Menangle to smoke cannabis. At this time, they allege Henderson or Ketley offered Phillips a drink of water and an ice cream.
Henderson later admitted to wiping blood from the back of the car, near the licence plate, using a black and white tea towel which she dumped on the side of the road, police facts state. Detectives were able to retrieve the cloth.
After leaving the Ambarvale address, police retrieved data which suggested Ketley entered the address of the Belanglo State Forest into her satellite navigation system.
The magistrate said ‘one could only wonder what the purpose of going [there] was’ and questioned whether it was ‘merely to inflict further terror on Phillips’.
While driving and following the directions of the satellite navigation system, the two women took several videos – equating to about five minutes – of themselves singing and dancing to rap music on the drive.
The court heard following their arrest, Ketley claimed she was heading to Colo Vale to return the hire car they were driving. She denied they were ever on the way to the Belanglo forest, which is well south of Colo Vale.
By 11.30am – some 12 hours after the ordeal allegedly began – concerned motorists began calling 000 to report an erratic driver on the Hume Motorway. A truck driver claimed a tail light was broken on the car and that what appeared to be a hand was sticking through, signalling for help.
Police eventually pulled over the car and allegedly found the 30cm black kitchen knife at Ketley’s feet.
They also found the alleged victim, still in the boot, with stab wounds to both legs, left shoulder and torso. Her left shoulder was dislocated.
Police claim Ketley’s DNA and fingerprints were on the handle of the knife, and the alleged victim’s blood was on the blade of a second knife.
In Ketley’s initial police interview, she denied knowing Phillips was in the boot of the car and admitted to owning a small amount of marijuana that was seized.
She claimed the woman from the earlier Ambarvale address asked her to pick up the car from Ambarvale Hotel car park and return it to a hire company in Colo Vale.
Henderson was interviewed separately and also claimed she was asked to pick up the car and return it to the Colo Vale hire company.
But the 18 year old, who was then in the early stages of pregnancy, allegedly also made partial admissions, including acknowledging that she knew Phillips was in the boot and that she wiped blood from the car and left the tea towel on the side of the road.
